 hs-plugins (1.4.1-3) unstable; urgency=low
   [ Marco TĂșlio Gontijo e Silva ]
   * debian/control: Use one package for line in dependencies.
   * debian/rules: Make build depend only in build-arch to avoid building
     indep packages in all architectures.
   [ Joachim Breitner ]
   * Depend on hscolour in Build-Depends-Indep, fixes FTBFS (does not affect
     binNMUs, so no hurry needed) (Closes: #537000)
   * Use newest cdbs, to be able to use build docs in build-indep and
     still be buildd-friendly
   [ Marco TĂșlio Gontijo e Silva ]
   * debian/control: Use more sintetic name for Vcs-Darcs.
   [ Iain Lane ]
   * debian/rules: Do not install .haddock file in -doc package.
     haskell-devscripts now installs these in -dev packages, but we did not
     take into account the fact that hs-plugins installs the doc package
     manually and so the same file was available in both packages, which led to
     file conflicts and uninstallability. (Closes: #542624)
   * debian/control: Add Vcs-Browser
   [ Joachim Breitner ]
   * Bump standards version (no change)
